Chennai desalination plant is going to operate starting from July 31, 2010. This project was under construction for last 3 years. Finally it is ready to serve Chennai. Lets hope that this project would be successful and solve Chennai's water problem, Although this project alone can not solve the water problem. But the project's success would encourage the government to implement more projects like this. This plant cost is Rs.400 Crores and this would supply 100 million liters drinking water to Chennai.
